There are many myths that come with the process of CNC Machining. One of the myths is that CNC machining is completely automated. The issue with this is that when a machine fails, it’s a humans responsibility to get the machine back up. There is also a myth going around that you don’t need any experience in order to operate a CNC machine. These machines require a bunch of experience and training in order to get comfortable using the machine and it’s tools.
- People think that you can run a part on a CNC and then just forget about it but you need to understand issues are still possible.
- CNC machining can predict production time but it’s also very difficult to anticipate machine failures or part failures which effect production time.
- Not everything in CNC machining is automated, as humans are tasked with getting systems back up once a machine fails.
“For anyone new to CNC machining, it’s always best to seek help from those with more experience.”
